1 - Vary the colors!

We start with the most complicated and the most subjective of the precepts to respect! We all agree that dressing exclusively in black, white or beige is not the best. We almost all agree when it comes to finding an outfit that lacks balance but it is much more complicated to deal with what we have in our closet. Even if it remains a matter of taste, there are still some golden rules that can guide you at the start, the time to be able to get away from it to stand on your own two feet. As for the choice of colors, you must first refer to the color of your skin and hair. Having a clear skin and a clear face will often mean avoiding too dark colors which would contrast too much with your face, eclipsing it in the process. Conversely, if you have dark skin and dark hair, too light colors would have the same effect. Then, it is important to work on colors that can balance them, either because they are close (navy blue and light blue), or because they are opposite but can match (navy blue and beige ). These compositions are essential because they make it possible not to end up in walking monochrome, wearing only one and the same color throughout our outfit. An aesthetic horror! It is also interesting to vary the materials, between leather, jeans, cotton, linen or even jersey. This will really help support your color choices by adding texture to your outfit. To conclude, I will tell you about the color reminders, this little detail that will show anyone who knows how to see how much time and diligence you have devoted to your outfit! A brown belt will make it easier to integrate brown shoes into your outfit, just like a colored tie. Finally just enjoy yourself, and if the colors you wear look like you, you follow these rules and you go all out, everything will be fine!

2 - Choose clothes in your size!

This seems to be the basis of everything, and yet it is far from always being! Many are seen in the streets with the pants on the middle of the buttocks, without even doing it on purpose. This kind of look can lend itself to certain styles of pants but when the latter isn't made for it, it shows! Be careful to choose your size and the cut according to your morphology. Too wide, too tight, too tall or the legs too short, it was really quick to miss your pants purchase by carelessness and it's not great! Especially when you see the price of some badly worn pants! This applies of course to all of the clothes you can wear and pants are no exception. It is true that being a little wrapped up does not help to wear clothes close to the body, on the other hand, wearing clothes that are too large will never hide your curves but will tend to do the opposite! You have to find the right balance and above all be comfortable in your clothes, this is one of the keys to well-being. As for jackets now, and more specifically suit jackets, it is more relevant than ever to talk about size! If at one time long, slightly loose jackets could be tolerated, it would clearly be considered a bad taste today! A jacket must be adjusted while leaving a certain range of movement for its wearer, this flexibility which we all need so as not to look like a penguin. Then, the length of the jacket itself is important and should be chosen according to individual tastes. As for the sleeves, they should show off the shirt, especially if you wear cufflinks and it is in bad taste to have the cuffs and half of the hands covered as can be seen on many badly made jackets. This is important because it avoids the puffy side that can be with a badly worn costume and it is all these small details that make you look classy, ​​or just look like a redneck who put on his costume of Sunday ! As for other clothes, it is pretty much understood that a pair of over sized shoes is not worn and that a too small cap that is just placed on the head, it is clearly not beautiful. Finally, it is understood for most people anyway!

3 - Choose the right materials!

Favoring natural materials seems obvious to us today, but it is not for everyone. Without saying that it comes before the aesthetic aspect of the garment, I would say that it counts almost as much because it is at the same time of our comfort, our well-being and the durability of the garment chosen. Comfort already because some materials are much more comfortable to wear than others and there is clearly nothing to do between a 100% cotton T-shirt and a half-polyester T-shirt. Cotton will inevitably be softer and more comfortable to wear. On the well-being side, natural materials are always more breathable than synthetic and that changes a lot, in summer as in winter. Already it keeps much warmer, which is still important depending on the season. You will therefore need less clothes to be well, you will necessarily be more comfortable and avoid the risk of colds of all kinds. Then the breathable side will allow your perspiration not to accumulate in the garment but to evacuate naturally through the fabric, it's still better than wearing T-shirts that let us sweat without letting anything pass ! This breathable side finally lets the body cool off in hot weather and that's great! In short, less risk of feeling the transpet! In terms of clothing durability, natural materials such as cotton or jersey are more resistant to wear, the effects of time and odors. Sometimes when you buy a synthetic T-shirt, after a while, the fabric will soak up the smell of perspiration and you just can't get it back! With the naturalness finished, you can finally wear your favorite clothes to the end without a problem! To conclude, on the aesthetic side, you can really see the difference and this is perhaps the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone by changing a little material in the clothing. Exit the eternal jeans that fill your closet with its almost identical models, why not opt ​​for some chinos with original colors and super resistant material and pretty to wear? (see our article on the best chinos for men) To test, you will tell us the news!

4 - Do not try to be another!

Choosing clothes that look like us is really the main thing because, while you may not notice it, your attitude and gait clearly change when you put on a different outfit. Try to put on a tuxedo to someone who spends their entire year in a tracksuit and you'll see what I'm talking about. His way of wearing it, walking with it and sitting down will tell you whether or not he is used to this type of outfit. In addition, by wearing clothes that do not look like us, that do not suit our style or our way of being, we give a distorted image of us that comes back to our own eyes. Difficult then to be comfortable in his sneakers. It's better to be yourself and find the look that best fits your skin, the type of clothing that makes us feel like we're not wearing anything, an extension of us that reflects both our personality and our idea of which is aesthetic or not. It is real therapy for those who want to play well and it can even help people who would not accept themselves physically, helping them to feel beautiful, to accept themselves and therefore to please others! Confidence is the crux of the matter when it comes to seduction!

5 - Contextualize!

Of course, it is important to take the context into account when choosing your outfit. Whether you go to a social evening, an aperitif with friends or an evening in the city hoping to meet charming young girls, we will not dress the same way. The socialite evening demands that we get down to the level of the guest's dress code. It's hard to get an idea before setting foot there, but habit makes it easier to see things. You have to level up but not overdo it, showing up in a suit at a party where everyone is sporting a casual chic look could show that you have high expectations for this event in terms of meetings. Being too elegant has never been good for business or human contact! On the other hand, not doing enough would mirror someone else's image. Someone who wants to stand out from the crowd but doesn't do it the right way. People around you will subconsciously be less inclined to come and talk to you, marginalizing you and making you uncomfortable without really knowing why. Whether it is in this context or simply for an aperitif in the city, making a difference often involves doing things differently. A look really works according to the image you want to convey of yourself. Brown shoes, beige chinos and a dark blue jacket could for example bring relaxation to your style. A sort of natural elegance that even when dressing casually feels innate in you. Class what!

6 - Have fun!

To be comfortable in your pumps, as in everything, you have to know how to evolve. And for that, what better way than to try on new outfits, experience new fashions and go where you never dared go before. This kind of stylistic exploration necessary when you start to tire of your appearance and which will allow you to break your own codes! For that, you don't have to go very far! A stroll through a store to find some pieces that you could match, this shirt that you never dared to try, this chinos too colorful for you. Believe me, you might surprise yourself! Someone who takes pleasure in dressing and likes to have choice in their wardrobe it shows at first glance. This kind of person who is going to have style even when he says he is out in pajamas, who will be well dressed even to go get his bread, not because he has crazy clothes, but simply because he takes the time to choose them and tune them. No need to wear Burberry, Chanel or be a fashion victim to have class!

All in the outfit is to take pleasure in dressing and choosing your clothes. Some are addicted to shopping when others would be fine, yet love to have clothes that look like them. Whether you go reluctantly or out of love for shopping, you have to get started if you want to have fun when wearing all the beautiful pieces you have chosen! So be motivated like never before!
